did not rule out supporting a statewide property tax to benefit public education funding,
Take from the wealthy to give to the poor. Granted property assessment across the varying districts are anywhere near equal. Just look at some of the top football complexes amongst some of the high schools.
However education needs to be funded via some method be it property tax, sales tax, or some other method of taking the money from the populace.
Our properties are taxed for education, 25% of our fuel taxes go to education, and the lottery (a tax on dumb people)was passed as a way to fund education. I see ISD's building their little empires where the superintendents bring in 6-figure salaries and that of their bureaucratic entourage is almost equal. Teachers, OTOH, seem to be on the bottom of the financial pecking order. I say, enough is enough.
